Williams and Walsh - Civil Litigation

Defective Products / Product Liability

Actions Involving Defective or Unsafe Products and Materials

Thousands of ordinary consumers and workers are injured every year – some severely or even fatally – due to the failure of a product manufacturer to make its product reasonably safe for its intended use. This can include the following:

  • Failure to place warning labels on a product
  • Flaws in the design process
  • Problems with the manufacture of a specific product
  • Failure to properly test products
  • Known hazards that are not disclosed to the public

You need an experienced law firm to take on the challenge of ensuring that products placed in the stream of commerce are not unreasonably dangerous. Actions such as these are highly technical; experts in engineering, design, and other scientific fields are necessary to evaluate the product; huge amounts of documents must be produced and reviewed; and, the process of bringing the case to trial is long and exacting.

  • Automobiles (rollovers, seat belts, child safety devices, airbags, tires)
  • Consumer Goods (appliances, tools, toys, food items)
  • Medical Devices and Pharmaceuticals (prescription and over-the-counter drugs, heart implants, surgical devices)
  • Industrial Products (factory machinery, farm implements and vehicles, construction devices)
